1996 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan

Review

I bought this car when it had 132500. Overall, its a pretty nice car, never failed me in times. Can be expensive to fix but if you have the right connections, you can get it fixed for the right price. In the year i owned it, i replaced the cv boot-90 for parts and 90 for work, timing belt changed for the first time changed at 135000 and didnt even snap, impressive. Window just driver side motor just broke, 110 with part. Gas mileage is my biggest concern. During the winter i got 16mpg, and summer i got 20, might not be so bad for a normal car but pretty bad for a 130hp 4 banger. Also winter driving was horrible with no traction

Favorite Features

Handling is unbelievable, just like a sports car, a 5 year old could drive it with a pinky, very nice steering. Very smooth suspension and nice ride.

Suggested Improvements

FUEL ECONOMY!!!! Better window design, slow motion. Very weak engine. Transmition gets very jumpy at higher mileage. Better radio and speakers.
